 arpa stile impero

Historical Harp


Since the begginning og the XIX century harps employed silk wound bass strings.
This is why the old fashion harp bass strings produce a so different sound than the modern ones, made with nylon multifilaments.
The development of a new synthetic material that can imitate the acoustical characteristics of silk but without some typical defects such as, for example, the instability to changes of climate, has always been a fundamental goal of our research.
The Nylgut® multifilament represents the fruit of this research: Nylgut®’s multifilaments has the same silk’s density.
Other strong points of Nylgut® are its’ elevated resistance under tension -greater than silk- but even more important is its extraordinary immunity to changes of climate, considerable superior to that of nylon and gut, thereby guarantying an insuperable stability of tuning under normal conditions.
